Revised versions of Francis Watson's Articles on the Jesus Wife Fragment

I am grateful to Francis Watson for sending over revised and updated versions of his short articles on the Gospel of Jesus' Wife fragment.  These revised versions take account of the new findings on lines 6 and 7.  Prof. Watson explains his revisions in the main article, note 1, crediting the various people responsible for them both there and at appropriate points later.  I have uploaded the pieces to the same places as before, so the old links will all work, but the links are gathered here again for convenience.

Of the three articles, the first is for the non-specialist and the other two include discussion of the language.  The second here is the main piece:

Hi Mark! Timo Paananen has written an article about the methods Watson uses, which I think offers a fascinating perspective on this. I've shared it on my blog here:
